The authors discussed disorders in adipocytokines' function in chronic renal failure (CRF) and their clinical implications. Adipocytokines' concentrations in CRF are in most cases elevated, which is associated with decreased level of their excretion. This may cause number of clinical implications such as inflammation, loss of appetite, development of(More)
UNLABELLED Determination of circadian of prolactine (PRL) profile and its relationship to selected clinical and laboratory indices in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis as well as those in predialysis period was the aim of the study. Investigations were carried out in 38 patients with ESRD aged 36 to 79 yr.(More)
Due to a high frequency of autoimmune diseases in patients with ESRF we observed for 4 years 8 patients treated with HD with high level of TPOAb and 8 patients without TPOAb. Aim of the study was to estimate the role of TPOAb as a prognostic factor of hypothyreosis. We observed in a 4-years follow-up significant increase of TSH (p<0.05) in patients with(More)
The aim of this study was to look at basic endocrinological disorders in chronic kidney disease, acquainting endocrinologists with information about the definition and classification of kidney diseases and basic metabolic disorders in uraemia. Secondary hyperparathyroidism, insulin resistance and hyperinsulinism, growth hormone disorders and the possibility(More)
UNLABELLED Evaluation of metoclopramide (MTC) test values in end-stage renal disease patients undergoing hemodialysis with different level of hyperprolactinemia was aim of the study. Clinical value of application of the MTC test and influence of different laboratory and clinical factors including erytropoietin treatment were examined. Sixty-eight(More)
BACKGROUND Lowered testosterone level in CRF patients is associated with elevated risk of death due to cardiovascular reasons, and is influenced by many factors, including acid-base balance disorders. AIMS evaluation of testoste-rone concentration (TT) and free testosterone concentration (fT) in pre-dialysis and dialysis patients; assessment of TT and fT(More)

We analysed medical documentation of 65 patients with alcoholic cirrhosis admitted to the Internal Diseases Department with Dialysis Ward in the hospital in Wolomin between 2002 and 2004 year. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to renal disfunction: patients with HRS-1, patients with HRS-2 and patients with cirrhosis without renal failure. Each(More)
Hypothyroidism in patients with renal failure (RF) causes many metabolic and clinical problems, and both these diseases can mutually exacerbate their disturbances. AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of hypothyroidism, and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on conversion of thyroid hormones (TH) in patients with ESRD treated with chronic(More)
